IR Problem-Solving Strategies - Interpreting IR Spectra (handout)

Introduction to Mass Spectrometry (handout | answer key)

Following are NMR handouts that you may find to be useful in solving NMR problems.

Other resources:

Spectroscopy textbook written by Cal Poly Pomona's very own Dr. Phil Beauchamp! Also, Dr. Beauchamp created a useful guide for interpreting Mass Spec fragmentation patterns.

1H NMR tutorials and practice: WebSpectra - Dr. Merlic (UCLA)| Dr. King (Wake Forest) | Dr. Reusch (MSU) | Dr. Reich (U Wisconsin Madison)
